Yeah I would think the same thing if I were you. Your team looks very solid in a 14 team league.

How did you manage to get ARod Manny and Bay? Did you have the first pick and Bay and Mannny dropped 27 spots?

Anyway your pithcing is probably hurting you considering Sheets went down and you only have one closer. How have you been doing in that area? Furthermore, you might want to add someone to help out with some speed as well.

I got them all through creative trading. I drafted Manny 8th overally, and got Bay on the way back (16th) in the 2nd round. I then traded Furcal (4th round) Glaus (8th round) and Pierre (traded for him giving up Willingham and Valverde in April) for A-Rod. I later managed to trade for a MI (Cantu) and moved Lugo over to SS. Wood serves as my "closer" since he qualifies as a RP. This league rewards SP's much more than RP's so it is working out okay but his inconsistency hurts a bit.

Don't get down on yourself. Bonds is perhaps the most difficult player to manage with questions of when he's playing and is he worth it? Bay has seriously heated up, and Manny is being Manny of late. Lugo is coming around and showing some power. Only suggestion is that you need 1 more solid SP. You should moving up soon.

with the exception of a few players you have an inconsistent line up, manny was struggling all of april and part of may, arods been hit or miss, you can definetly use some more speed however and lugo and cantu i think is a weakness in ur lineup
